Hurricane and hurriane flags Are You Prepared
The 2019 hurricane season begins June 1, and as storms threaten the US, it is important to have a safety plan. AccuWeather is predicting 12 to 14 storms (five to seven hurricanes) would form this 2019 hurricane season. No one can predict where these storms will hit, which is why it is important to be prepared. Hurricane Harvey caused countless deaths, massive destruction and mass evacuations in Texas. While we cannot predict which communities will be hit by a hurricane, one thing we can do is prepare for this type of event.

The Elizabeth Pannill Fletcher for Congress campaign is running a political ad in Texas’ 7th Congressional District that cites AARP on issues regarding the age-tax for people ages 50+. While AARP is an advocate for affordable health care for older adults and their families, AARP did not authorize this ad to reference AARP nor did AARP participate in the production of such ads.
Be the Difference
An AARP poll released October 1 shows more than two-thirds of voters age 50 and older in Texas’ Seventh Congressional District believe Congress should strengthen Medicare and Social Security, address rising prescription drug costs, and strengthen and support family caregivers.
Being in a big city like Houston means there are tons of resources for caregivers if you know here to find them. This is why AARP in Houston started this podcast. The idea is to help highlight the exact partners and programs you might need as a caregiver. We have discussed programs in Houston, but what is available to our neighbors around us? What happens if you live in Waller, Fort Bend or Galveston County? What are your options there?
